Aussie 4 Speed Installation

by Turbineman [old] » Mon Jun 24, 2013 3:46 pm

Hello All

Well I am a new guy here and this is my first post. I am presently in the process of restoring a 64 EH ute and it is in the paint shop at the moment. I have purchased a Aussie 4 speed to marry up to a 179 engine. I am also organising the standard HR front end to go along with the upgrade. My question is do I need to make adjustments to the engine mounts with the HR front end or will every thing line up nicely. I have looked at several of the other posts but not really seen a definite answer on this. Would appreciate any assistance here, will get some project pictures going in the following week.

If the front end is straight out of a hr the engine mount positions need to be altered and the outrigger needs to be changed

Is your EH originally manual or auto. Because manual floor is smaller you will have to modify the floor to fit the Aussie 4 speed. If it is auto floor, the 4 speed will fit easy.

You'll need to get the box up to the suitable height then build a rear crossmember to suit. The floor will need to be cut & rebuilt as required. Getting the engine & box angle the same as it was before modifying will go a long way to ensuring you don't introduce driveline vibrations.
The auto floor & manual floor are very different. Unless you're planning to fit complete auto floor, sill to sill, grafting a section of the auto tunnel in is not much value. You may as well use a rolled section of panel steel.
